Cocktail guru Paul McGee’s tiki temple is unequivocally the most fun place in Chicago to get tipsy. After a couple of potent but devilishly drinkable cocktails—they’re sweet in all the right places and never cloying—even the most stressed-out urbanite will be won over by the ersatz tropical vibe: parrot-shaped glassware, fish tank behind the bar, palm-frond swizzle sticks. You will leave happier than you came, guaranteed.
